Julienne is the co-founder and CEO of Inkomoko Rwanda, a family of business incubators and accelerators focused on supporting and investing in local entrepreneurs across Africa. Founded in 2011, Inkomoko Entrepreneur Development is the Rwandan affiliate of the African Entrepreneur Collective. Inkomoko provides business training, individual consulting, and direct access to affordable financing services to MSMEs. With offices in 18 locations across Rwanda, Kenya, Ethiopia, and South Sudan including in refugee camps, Inkomoko has worked with more than 13,000 entrepreneurs resulting in over 8,000 new jobs and over $13M USD invested. Julienne is passionate about the tremendous potential that young African entrepreneurs have to transform their communities and continent. With more than 15 years of work in youth empowerment and international development, Julienne was inspired to create Inkomoko after spending time with several young entrepreneurs in Mali who, in the midst of drought and political instability, drove economic opportunities for themselves and their communities through entrepreneurial endeavors. Prior to founding AEC, Julienne served as the Director of Development and Communications at College Track, a national after-school program in the US. In addition, she has held leadership and strategic consulting positions at a number of organizations including the African Leadership Academy, Capital Partners for Education, and the Yale School of Management.
